Palmer Change Ringers ring for services on Sundays between the 9 am and 11 am service and after the 11 am service. We also ring for weddings and other special occasions in the life of the parish and the community. We practice on the first and third Wednesdays from 7:00–8:45 pm at Palmer. There is also a Monday evening practice held at St. Paul’s Methodist and St. Thomas Episcopal for all local ringers.
A new set of eight bells used for change ringing has brought the total in our tower to 17 bells. These eight bells, rung in with an ancient methodology on a very modern mechanism, produce a rich cascade of sound. This is change ringing.
Change ringing requires special bells, special music, and ordinary people who enjoy climbing towers, working as a team, and performing “The Exercise.” Change ringing depends on real bells, real ropes, and real people; each bell is swung in a complete circle by a single person, therefore, eight bells—eight persons.

We are always looking for more ringers—all it takes is enthusiasm and dedication. We teach the rest.
